  1. Hi Xenia. Has is got chilly again or is it early morning? I see Pearl is wearing her coat. I will not be blogging much for a while as I am trying to spend more time actually writing and completing writing projects I started a while ago and then left hanging because I was not prioritizing my time. I want to get published more than just on my blog and hopefully start earning money from my writing. So I will read your posts but may like not leave a comment. Kim xxx

    1. Thank you so much for your kind comments Kim. It is early morning here and Pearl is wearing a purple harness (not a coat). From mid-April to mid-August there are many ground-nesting birds near the hiking trails and dogs need to be kept on a lead in most areas. A harness is kinder on dogs when they have to be on a lead for longer. They get plenty off-lead time on the beach for zoomies. Good luck with your writing projects and please give Bossi, Buddy, Jannie and Purdy a big pat from us all :o) xxx
